Q: My new turbo leaking from the bottom exhaust side.

asked by on

I have replaced my faulty turbo with a new genuine one. It leaks now on the outside underneath on the exhuast side. Only a little. I took the oil return hose from the turbo off at the sump. When I start the car oil comes out of the sump and stops when I turn the car off. Why would oil come out the sump where the turbo return hose goes. Oil is not over full. 1999 nissan patrol 2.8 turbo diesel
